Sew an Unexposed Zipper

Threads magazine - 174 - Aug./Sept. 2014 Issue

Featured in Threads #174 (August/September 2014), this article by Claire Shaeffer details how to sew a zipper so that it appears stitchless. The aesthetics of this technique can’t be beat. Hand sewing a standard zipper in such a way that it becomes invisible was a common practice in the 1960s. It is a variation of the slot (centered) zipper, but you are more likely to equate the results with the invisible zippers so popular today. Although it has no stitches on the outside to secure it, you can depend on this method to install a reliable closure wherever a zipper is needed.
